Goat Familiarity: Alpines, Toggenburgs, Nubians
Experience: "We have 50 goats...most born and raised here...since '93. We maintain a good goat resource library and believe it is important to know WHERE to find answers. When it comes to raising goats, the learning never ends. Every year, we experience a different (and sometimes unique) health or hazard concern. We would be happy to share the benefit of our experiences. We live in a very rural area and in the first few years of owning goats, we had no one to call on during emergencies. Sometimes it would be 2-3 days before our vet would even show up or call us back. As we discovered, many emergencies are not as life-threatening as they seemed, but can be enormously stressful. Conversely, some situations become worse when neglected. If we can help people look at the symptoms and suggest ways to help them determine what should be done, we would be happy to help fellow goat-owners."
